It was my last Members meeting and I found the kind words from members on my Presidency – I look forward to 2017 – 8 when John Pillay takes the reins. I had a fabulous team to help me achieve our objectives, It was great to welcome new members to our club.

I showed 3 short video clips of inspirational commitment in regards to “Never give up to follow your dream” and strengthening the self-belief and motivation.

In the club we have many of the qualities to value the club by our professional and expertise members, like a positive spirit. This was an attitude many of us has been related to.

We have been this journey together that we have led our club to a better place and we have done to make our year and our club the best it could.

It has been the greatest honor of my life to work alongside with you all as a President in 2016-17.
